BOCA RATON, FL , United States
Based in SW Palm Beach County, FL, I'm a 5th year USAT Level 1 triathlon coach. My coaching service portfolio includes individualized coaching and group-based training for swimming, biking, running, and triathlon. My athletes typically undergo period-based training segmented in four week progressive blocks - each plan different from the previous because each athlete has different training and racing goals. Periodic assessments are mandatory with my athletes, as well as strength training.
I was first introduced to triathlons in 2008 by a friend/colleague who convinced me to sign up for my first sprint with my "trusty" mountain bike. Since then, a few marquee events I've raced include: Boston Marathon, Ironman Los Cabos, Ironman 70.3 World Champs, and ITU Long-Course World Champs (TeamUSA) - as well as a few SwimRun races. The number of local races is countless but I've enjoyed every single one. The triathlon community and the enjoyment of the sport led me to seeking my coaching certification in 2017. I have trained several dozen athletes over the years both locally and internationally - athletes who've trained for their first triathlon, their first Ironman and first half-ironman, and through Boston qualifications. I've also been a swimming and running clinician at the Spinning Escape Jamaica (SEJA).
Strength training is built in to every athlete's plan not only to make the athlete stronger but to stay injury-free. But for each athlete, we focus on making it fun. All new and current athletes undergo an initial athlete assessment which helps me get to know the athlete but allows the athlete to get to know themselves too...it's amazing what writing things down does for us!
